Wonderland PRD gets approved

Chadds Ford Township supervisors Tuesday gave final approval for a proposed planned residential development along Oakland Road. The PRD, known as Wonderland Farms, calls for 22 new single-family homes on the west side of Oakland Road and 12 twin units on the east side.

Harrier LLC, a Grace family business entity, is the developer. The development is just south of Brinton’s Bridge Road.

Supervisors gave preliminary approval for the plan in December 2016, but that was delayed because of an appeal in Common Pleas Court. The township and applicant reached a settlement, and the preliminary approval became official in January of 2017.

The final approval of the PRD comes with a series of conditions. Among those conditions are a requirement that the developer gives $3,000 per new dwelling to the township. Those funds shall be used as the supervisors see fit, according to the resolution.

Other conditions require active recreational open space be provided for both sides of the development and that a gazebo or other type of shelter is installed on the west side. Running and walking trails must also be constructed.

The applicant is also required to install a raised pedestrian walkway across Oakland Road connecting the two sides of the PRD.

There is also a four-bedroom limitation on the 12 twin units.
